The evolution of a bookshelf

We have been playing musical rooms with the bedrooms again. It seems as tho I can't leave them alone for more than 6 months or so without swapping big pieces of furniture back and forth between the rooms and recreating the spaces into something new and exciting.

So....the most recent room swap has resulted in the girls losing their playroom (after many attempts to get them to clean it) and me getting a craft room! We moved the girls' beds into the bigger room so they could have their toys and such all in the same room and so I could have the smaller room for sewing, crafts etc!

Well, in the moving around, their playroom/bedroom is definitely a bit more crowded than it was before and their just wasn't a place for the newly acquired Barbie collection. I have been thinking about getting them a house of some sorts but just haven't found the right one at the right I decided to improvise!

This book shelf was one I purchase off our single neighbor in Alaska when he was moving. Janie was just a baby, or maybe not even born, and I thought it would be perfect for all of her little board books! It has served her books well but long since overflowed with her love of reading so it was time for something new!

In theory, this will be something for them to play with when I am in there sewing and can't watch them in the other room. We'll see if that all pans out but for the time being I am so excited to show them. I'm just waiting for the perfect time ! Someday I'd like for them to have a bigger one but for now this Barbie condo will have to gotta start somewhere right?
*Dori would not stay out of the picture! I guess she didn't want to miss out on all the attention! lol
